Finnish sailors lost their place in the Olympic program


At the Sarasota meeting in Florida, the National Navigation Union confirmed the changes in the 2024 Olympic Games program to be held in Paris. The Finn class was removed from it and added kiteboard and keelboat to mixed teams.

The Finn class was part of the 1952 Olympic Games for the latest medals that sailors will battle in Tokyo 2020.

At the 2024 Paris Games, the new Olympic and kelboat kiteboard for mixed teams will be awarded. At this year's Singapore Olympic Games, Slovenian Toni Vodišek won silver in kiteboarding.

In the rowboat, boats will compete between six and ten meters in length and will develop a speed of four to 40 knots. In the opinion of those responsible for the international community, it is said to be one of the most attractive disciplines for mixed crews. Detailed technical details will be set next year.

In the fine class, the Slovenian sailors have achieved many successes, of which the most remarkable are Gašper Vinčec and Vasilij Žbogar.
